Feeling the love… Best Moments Ever


Shaun from Scotland (as opposed to Shaun the Sheep) sent me this very cool “Best Moments Award”. Should I ever win an Academy Award Shaun can help me write my acceptance speech as he seems to be training me for this eventuality.

I’m sending this award on to some people to have given me a good laugh, a moment’s pause, a shock to the system or just a really good tea break.

So thanks Shaun @ http://prayingforoneday.wordpress.com

More rules… Again with the rules Shaun?

  1. Display the award logo on your blog. And do an acceptance speech
  2. Link back to the person who nominated you.
  3. Answer 7 questions.
  4. Nominate (no limit of nominations) other bloggers for this award and link back to them.
  5. Notify those bloggers of the award requirements.

Question and answer time…

If you could create your own planet what would it look like?

Harrods? Pink? Empty. A blank canvass for me to wave my hands about and say stuff like, “Let there be light!” in a big booming voice. Either that or my bed.

If you could visit one nation you have never visited before, what nation in the world would that be?

Not Egypt. I’ve been there. The pyramids were stinky. I’d like to go Argentina and see the waterfalls.

Have you ever taken a long distance train trip?

Shaun!  Get on a train and go across the channel there’s a challenge for you.  Yes, I have, I took a train across Europe and my friend chewed liquorice bark from Italy to France. The smell…

What is something you would collectively change about humanity?


What is your favourite song?

Today… I really liked singing along to Lightening Seeds “Life of Riley”

If you could meet one person who is still alive who would you choose to meet?

Shaun! How can you say Paul McCartney? Last week you assured me he was DEAD. And I started to believe you.

I would like to meet John Cleese and Archbishop Desmond Tutu (because he has a wicked sense of humour for a priest)

If you could choose one symbol to represent you, what would that symbol be and why?

A snake, because it represents balance and rebirth (not because of the whole Garden of Eden devil thing)

Some of my best moments are thanks to these people:

The Mighty Ndlovu @ http://anelephantcant.me/

The Dilettante @ http://helenahannbasquiat.wordpress.com/

The Slacker @ http://cravesadventure.wordpress.com/

The Jenn with 2 ns @ http://thatsajennstory.com/

I don’t mind if you don’t want to schlep with the whole interview nomination thing. I just wanted to let you know that I’ve appreciated you reading me and I’ve enjoyed reading you.

I write because I have to. It is a compulsion. I do it to vent, to laugh and to remember. I blog because it has been so long since I had to write with a pen that my hand would go into cramp if I tried to write a journal.

  1. Um.. Penny here… I feel like one of those poor saps that has to step on the stage at the Oscars and accept the award on someone’s behalf. I’m sure Helena would be happier than a pig in… well, you know… but she’ll have to get back to you when she returns. I think she’s planning on looking in for that flashy fiction thing some night this week, so I’ll make sure I pass this on to her.

      1. It’s an honour to be nominated, darling, really, and as you well know, I do my fair share of promoting other blogs — I just don’t do it this way — I did once, and it just seemed more of a pain that it was worth. But if you ever want to ask me biographical questions, I promise to be consistently less than forthright and shamelessly evasive, darling — being coy is my modus operandi, you know.
        I am glad you enjoy reading my stories, and am grateful for the recognition, especially since it is sincerely reciprocated.

  2. Thanks so much – love your blog and your writing flair – you make my emotions run WILD and give me an ESCAPE as well as a GOOD belly laugh!!! I appreciate the nomination:)

  3. AnElephantCant accept an award
    Although he is quite humbled by the honour
    He is happy enough
    That you like his stuff
    So he returns it with love to the donor

    The Mighty Ndlovu bows before the generosity and warmth of Victoria.
    Thank you.

  4. Are you just trying to wear me down so that FINALLY I accept at least ONE of the awards for which you’ve nominated me? No, seriously, though–thank you! That’s really lovely. I like the questions on this one. Although MY question as a grammar neurotic is, isn’t “collectively” technically modifying “you” in that question about changing humanity? “you collectively?” I fail to see how this is possible, unless you have multiple personalities and they’ve all managed to agree on something. (Is my question inhumane?)

    How did your American holiday go?
